Melvin goes in-depth on the Sabathia trade.


A Sporting News writer did a piece on the Sabathia trade. It's mostly from Melvin's perspective, but has a few interesting quotes from Shapiro and Sabathia. Has some candid talk from Melvin about the timeline of the deal and what prompted it to happen when it did. It is pretty interesting to note that the first contact with Milwaukee was on June 13th. The Brewers were actually further out of first place than we were at the time.
